I'm posting this amazing Teens or 1920's beaded bag for my friend - she provided better pictures so I'm reposting. Note open picture #2 there is no little "made in...." tag. This was found at Round Top, TX last week with the other amazing purse. The approximate size is 6.5"x9" (w/fringe).
I've searched through my research books and online but can't find a similar example. Wonder if this might be a German item? I think it is was a one-of-a-kind order made by a very talented crafts woman. I read that beads were strung on wax coated cotton thread in reverse order of the design. I love tiny beads, but I can't imagine the time and eyesight this took!
